Thymoquinone Upregulates Catalase Gene Expression and Preserves the Structure of the Renal Cortex of Propylthiouracil-Induced Hypothyroid Rats

Figure 7

The glomeruli exhibit a -ve ASMA reaction in both the control (a) and TQ (b) groups. The glomeruli in the hypothyroid group show a strong widely distributed reaction (Shah, #102) (c). Hypothyroid rats administered TQ display a weaker and more localized glomerular reaction (crossed arrow) (d). The interstitium of both the control (e) and TQ (f) groups exhibits no ASMA+ve cells. The hypothyroid group reveals abundant ASMA+ve cells (arrowhead) (g). The hypothyroid+TQ group displays a fewer number of ASMA+ve cells (thick arrow) (i) (ASMA, ×400, ). ASMA expression in the renal glomeruli (i) and interstitium (j) of the studied groups is represented.
